This time 'round we present a photo taken in 1943 at Blackland Army Airfield, Texas which shows six airmen who, unlike the majority of their comrades at the time, had been around the block... some more than once. All but one were veterans of the Great War, and all were decorated in one way or another, including the fella on the far left; Private Leroy G. Payne, a native of Buffalo, NY.
Oh, almost forgot to mention... the bird behind them is a Beechcraft AT-10 Wichita.
